Continuously leaking power steering gear box. This is the 2nd replacement in less than 3500 miles and 3 months. When the vehicle is turning, it will squirt power steering out of the adjustment screw on top of the gearbox. Going 15-19 mph, the front end begins to vibrate; I can feel it in steering wheel but do take notice in the front end shaking. Not bad now but seems to be getting worse. The sound of coins can be heard in the ashtray/coinholder. Is there something going on here that needs to be looked at. Dodge dealership advises I need to buy a new steering gear box. How many do you have to buy" I am getting ready to buy my 3rd one in 4 months!!!! does this help steering" Dodge will not even look at this; I feel all they want to do is sell parts.

Owner had a head on collision with a tree. Although there were brake marks, there seemed to be a loss of steering control. Alchol was not a factor in the incident. The vehicle was deemed a total loss and remains on hold for inspection by Dodge (which will hopefully done in a timely manner-asap). There were many documents of repairs to the vehicle which I disposed of before finding this recall notice. It was purchased in 2014 by current driver.

The passenger side outer tie rod end fell out of the wheel. Violent shaking occurred but kept it in control and I stopped. Before this happened, in may of this year I stopped in to see if my vehicle had the tie rod that was under recall notice. The technician looked underneath and said "no your vehicle does not have the defective part." Monday after this incident, I called Chrysler and told them what happened and the representative (beth) since you did not have the malfunctioning (recall) part and because of the mileage on the truck, that there is nothing they can do. But she said to keep your receipts for repair in case there would be a recall notice for that part. I saved the defective part and had it fixed by an independent auto care specialist.
